The Thanksgiving bird usually takes center stage. It's your headliner. Your star. Your pièce de résistance. I get a juicy and flavorful bird every time by this fail-proof citrus-herb stuffing method. Here is my recipe using a chicken, but just adjust accordingly for the size of your bird.
So if the turkey is the star, then the side dishes are the back-up dancers. Let's call them, the Fall Favorites. Try any combination of these dishes for a balanced and colorful table.
Caramelized Brussel Sprouts
Orange Vegetable Mash
Roasted String Beans with Cherry Tomatoes and Shallots
Sauteed Cremini Mushrooms with Lemon, Capers, and Garlic
By the time you finish all this, who the heck has room for dessert? Instead of stuffing yourself full of almond or coconut flour dessert knock-offs, try serving some fresh fruit instead. Like these Dairy-Free Berry Parfaits. Instead of the almond flour cream cheese, whip up some fresh coconut cream for a light and delicious treat you won't feel guilty about later!
Wishing you and your family a very happy Thanksgiving!
